2024 Innovation Summit

Organized by the Juneau Economic Development Council (JEDC), the annual Innovation Summit attracts hundreds of entrepreneurs, business leaders, industry experts, policymakers, researchers, and change agents from across the country and around the world.

Join JEDC and your fellow Innovators in February for two engaging days of informative tours; mainstage speakers; Deep Dive workshops; thirty Innovation Shorts presentations; a Pitch Contest featuring a cash award for aspiring entrepreneurs; informative tours; a celebration of Alaskan Innovators; and many networking opportunities to connect with like-minded colleagues!

This year, Summit attendees can choose from various tracks, including the exploration of cruise industry research emphasizing balanced perspectives; the role of outdoor recreation in Alaska’s economy; and the upcoming Tongass Forest Plan Revision. In addition to gaining timely and relevant knowledge, attendees can expect to have meaningful discussions, experiment with Scenario Planning as a strategic approach, and enjoy networking experiences. These takeaways will allow for immediate application in the near term at home.

Critical decisions made by our business leaders and policy makers of today will markedly define the economic health and vitality of Alaska’s tomorrow. By delving deeper into the factors that fuel our core economic engines, attendees will purposefully envision possible futures designed to inspire prosperity and innovation across our region and the state.
